Pellets

All you need to know about feeding pellets (or nuggets) to guinea pigs.

PELLETS - Awesome for Vitamin 'C', but go easy!

Because guinea pigs can't produce their own vitamin 'C', it helps to supplement their diet with a small portion of vitamin rich pellets each day. At HayPigs!® we like to use a combination of Burgess™ Excel Nuggets and Supreme® Science Selective guinea pig food. These have both been specifically formulated to provide all of the vitamins and minerals your guinea pigs need.

Pellets should be placed in a non-tip bowl, like the HayPigs!® Food Craving Tamer - Food Bowl and carefully portion controlled.

To keep your pellets fresh, we recommend storing them in an air-tight bag or container. Remember; even pellets have a 'use by' date, so do check this.

TOP TIP:

Be sparing! Guinea pigs love to nosh and will keep eating pellets beyond what is good for them (a lot like us humans really!). 1/8 of a cup per pig will suffice! If you notice your piggies getting a little 'rotund', reducing the amount of pellets they eat is a good starting point!

TOP TIP:

We tend to put our pellets out over night and remove them again in the morning. This encourages the pigs to focus their attention on more important foods like hay and forage during the day. Pellets should only actually account for about 4% of their daily diet. 

 Pellets should be portion controlled, don't just fill your bowl to the top!
